Information for Interested GSoC Students

@brycegdev Welcome Bryce. As you should know about GSOC, it's up to you to decide how to contribute and what to propose as your project. Python experience is not necessarily required, because Plone has pretty comprehensive JSON REST API, which allows contributing to the future Plone user interface just with front-end knowledge (e.g. with React JS).

The official ideas pages included "Create-react-app -functionality" and "GatsbyJS -plugin", but as always, also your own idea is an option. There's only a week left in the application period, so you should hurry to read through the related discussions here (some linked below, but more by individual students available with search) and submit your first proposal draft.

We are still looking for students to work on the plone-react topic. We have a working version of plone-react now and a very skilled and motivated team of possible mentors.


I have submitted a draft of my proposal for the project Command-Line Plone Tools on the Google Summer of Code website. A review from the mentors would be highly appreciated :slight_smile:

hi my name is mohamed i want anyone to help me to know how can i apply and what is the details to build my proposal

Hi @MhamedEl-shahawy,

Welcome to the Plone community, we are glad you've chosen to check us out. There are five steps outlined at the top of this post to help you get started, along with links to the resources you'll need (including our ideas list). As you develop questions, please bring them to this forum. You can search to see if anyone has asked your question before, or start a new topic if you don't find that they have.

Instructions for writing a proposal are to be found on our GSoC Organization page. You'll want to work with the community to shape your proposal, and time is short (only six days left) so you'd best get to it.

Again, welcome!

Hi ! I have just come across Plone and I like the idea: Editor Improvements

With about 4 days until deadline, I would like to jump right in.
It would be very helpful if mentors can provide further details of the project so I can begin the draft proposal.
I have already begun working on the instructions provided above in the first post.
More about me: LinkedIn

I have submitted my GSoC Project Proposal on Command-Line Plone Tools.Please review it.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi cewing.

Anyway, to be chose or not, the good thing is it's a step I join the community! Yay!


@kyfstll welcome to the Plone community.
Can you please give your proposal a meaning full name like "Create Storybook for Plone-react", that makes it easier to find for the mentors beetween the other proposals.

I guess @tisto will have a look at it then.
